Super Mirror is as near a perfect polish that can be produced on stainless steel. Super Mirror is blemish free, it has no grain and has reflective qualities just like a glass mirror. It can be fabricated with conventional sheet metal machinery. Folded, rolled, engraved.
The reflectivity of Super Mirror creates light and space and is easily fabricated. Unlike glass mirror, Super Mirror can be used in food preparation areas, ceiling and high pedestrian areas, schools, prisons, and other difficult areas because it will not shatter.
If you use conventional glass mirrors in public areas and conduct a risk assessment it is likely that our shatterproof super mirrors have potential to reduce the risk of injury.
We have supplied many landscape garden designers with this product to add light and space.
Super Mirror is being used in the production of the 2012 film World War Z staring Brad Pitt.
Super Mirror is being tested with positive results for use in stage lighting, instead of downlighting, the high power stage lights which create very high temperatures are uplighting and reflecting downward from super mirror to create a different lighting atmosphere.
Super Mirror has many many applications where traditional glasss mirrors are marginal or unsuitable.
